Hi everyone, I just want to know which song do you reckon has the best beat for metal & rock. My favourite metal beat is the beat from Megadeth's song called holy wars .... The punishment due. For rock beat is probably Californication by red cold chilli peppers
Don't know about absolute favorite, but the opening part of Animate by Rush is awesome. Love the bell of the ride on the off beat.
Since the op brought up Megadeth, I always liked the groove in Train Of Consequences.
I absolutely love playing Learn to Fly by the Foo Fighter's. Such a great beat and the fills compliment the song perfectly.
My favourite drumming intro is perhaps 6:00 by Dream Theater. That running fill on the octobans into that groove is killer. But favourite beat that is the staple part of a song, can't beat War Pigs by Black Sabbath.
Since RHCP has been brought up several times, I love the groove in Suck My Kiss. I've never played it in a live setting (I think the bass players are afraid to tackle anything by Flea), but I love playing along to it.
